Description
The evil Akuma has destroyed the protagonist's homeland, killed many of his friends and kidnapped the princess Mariko. Fortunately, the hero is skilled in martial arts, so his inevitable quest to reach Akuma's palace and rescue Mariko has a chance of success. Karateka is viewed from the side and features a succession of increasingly difficult opponents. Three types of punches and kicks are available to both the player character and his foes, differentiated by their height (low, medium, and high). The protagonist has a health bar, which refills itself gradually when he stands still.

Subject: Buttons:
Q - High Punch
A - Mid Punch
Z - Low Punch
W - High Kick
S - Mid Kick
X - Low Kick
Spacebar - Change Stance (move/fight)
Right Arrow - Forward
Left Arrow - Backward

If you get hit while not in fight stance it is insta death.
